Let's do more to improve education for children with Down syndrome in 2015


See and Learn resources offer practical guidance and activities to help parents, teachers and therapists provide effective early intervention and education for children with Down syndrome and other children with similar learning needs.

Developed by Down Syndrome Education International and Down Syndrome Education USA, the See and Learn programmes include materials to promote speech development and language and reading skills. New programmes targeting memory and number skills will be published soon.

See and Learn resources are available as ready-made kits from DSE in the US and in the UK. They will soon also be available in new app editions compatible with many popular tablet and desktop computers.

Proceeds from sales of See and Learn resources contribute to continuing research and development. We also rely on donations to support our work improving education for children with Down syndrome.
